Noises Off

NOVEMBER 16-18, 2017 AT 8PM
NOVEMBER 19, 2017 AT 3PM

Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and – of course – flying sardines!

In the Heights

APRIL 12-14, 2018 AT 8PM
APRIL 15, 2018 AT 3PM

In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards® for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

Comedy of Errors

SEPTEMBER 28-30, 2017 AT 8PM
OCTOBER 1, 2017 AT 3PM
OCTOBER 12-14, 2017 AT 8PM
OCTOBER 15, 2017 AT 3PM

Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare’s shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play. Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos.

NOVEMBER 5, 2017 AT 3PM
NOVEMBER 9-11, 2017 AT 8PM
NOVEMBER 12, 2017AT 3PM

Next to Normal, winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 3 Tony Awards®, is a rock musical that the New York Times called “brave,” “breathtaking,” and “a work of muscular grace and power.” Next to Normal follows a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the wrenching affects her illness has on her family. While this emotionally rigorous show honestly portrays the pain of the mother’s mental illness, it is surprisingly hopeful. The music is vibrantly alive, and the dialogue will make you laugh through your tears.

Is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk? Be More Chill is based on the novel by Ned Vizzini.
